Michael Moore Throws His Considerable "Weight" Behind The St. Mark's Rent Concession Campaign
Via the folks over at Galleycat:
Everyone's favorite loudmouth rabble rouser made an appearance at St. Mark's Bookshop in NYC this past week in an attempt to drum up support for the fiscally challenged independent. Moore attracted a sizeable crowd- including a purple coifed, foul mouthed granny who was very vocal about her feelings for the neighborhood institution. Wanna vocalize yours? Then sign the damn petition. It is currently less than 4,000 sigs away from its goal of 45K. Or better yet, if you live in New York, make the pilgrimage and buy a gull dern book!
From the petition:
The St. Mark’s Bookshop has a long tradition in the Lower East Side and serves an admirable and increasingly rare function. St. Mark’s is struggling to pay the market rent that Cooper Union is charging them at 31 3rd Ave. A significant rent concession by Cooper Union could save this irreplaceable neighborhood institution.
Check out the ruckus. The rent is too damn high!
